Under the title “A Revolution of Dignity and Morals”, the committees in the Local Coordination Committees (LCC) organized the first week of a continuous campaign to focus on the principles and goals of the Syrian revolution that we are all committed to it, including civilians and military soldiers.
The campaign issued a statement signed by dozens of Committees and a number of Battalions. The statement was directed to members of the Free Syrian Army assuring them that the “People are behind you, Syria loves you, we recognize that your sacrifice the most precious thing you have, which is your life so that others can live and have the grace of dignity and security in a better Syria” The statement continues, “The free Syrians are waiting for you to change an image they grew accustomed to for the past 50 years. The image of a soldier and a ‘security’ man, who threatens them and deprives them of their dignity, money, and strips them of their rights despite the oath he took to protect them. People look up to you, and trust that you will live up to their expectations … to be someone who will not vandalize crops, will not kill a child, will not cut a tree or a plant, will not burn a house or abuse a woman or a child, nor kill unarmed civilians, nor take anything but the battle weapon … but someone who will protect them, fight for them, and defend them from anyone who threatens to strip them of their money, dignity, and land”
The statement also called the battalions of the Free Syrian Army to unite.
